    The Japan Society of Applied Physics

    The Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP) serves as an academic interface between science and engineering and an interactive platform for academia and the industry. JSAP is a "conduit" for the transfer of fundamental concepts to the industry for development and technological applications.

    JSAP was established as an official academic society in 1946, and since then, it has been one of the leading academic societies in Japan. The society's interests cover a broad variety of scientific and technological fields, and JSAP continues to explore state-of-the-art and interdisciplinary topics.

    To this end, the JSAP holds annual conferences; publishes scientific journals; actively sponsors events, symposia, and festivals related to science education; and compiles information related to state-of-the-art technology for the public.

Editorial & news

Nobel Prize
Congratulations to Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura on being awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize for Physics. Several of the key papers cited by the Nobel committee were published in this journal - visit the 2014 Nobel collection to read them for free.

New partnership
From 2014, JJAP will be published by IOP Publishing on behalf of The Japan Society of Applied Physics. All submissions and refereeing will continue to be handled by the JJAP Editorial Office at The Japan Society of Applied Physics. To submit a paper to JJAP, please connect to the editorial website.

Special issues
JJAP publishes a number of Special Issues each year. These feature research articles presented at major international conferences. These articles are fully peer-reviewed to JJAP's usual acceptance criteria. Fifteen special issues are planned for 2014. Click here for a list of the 2014 Special Issues.
